A Muslim civil rights group is accusing agents for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) of racially profiling, going door-to-door at some homes and making traffic stops in Hamtramck.
"What it appears is that they are fishing to see if they can find undocumented individuals out in the community," said Amy Doukoure, attorney for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) - Michigan.
Doukoure said there were pictures and video on social media of the interactions that they no longer have access to because they've been deleted. But they are still alerting people to be aware of their rights if they are stopped by immigration agents.
Hamtramck Mayor Karen Majewski said she asked the police department about the rumors of ICE agents conducting random searches, but police officials were not aware of that happening.
